" columnist in, and princeton professor paul krugman. >> in the united states, this is not as bad as theepression. however, it shashe feature of the great depression. most of the time period we call the great depression the economy was actually growing. but it wasn't growing fast enough to bring down that terrible unemployment rate at all quickly. same now. further more, the economic logic, the special feature of depression economics is that the federal reserve can't do its usual thing, can't just cut interest rates because the interest rates it controls directly are already at zro ich s allindf implications. it means that things like fiscal austerity, ordinarily if the government spends less that doesn't have to cause a recession because the fed can cut interest rates to offset that. but it can't do that now. so all of the logic of how economic policy works changes. we are qualitativefully the same situation we were in in the 30s. quantitatively it's not as bad but it has that same underlying logic. ros paul krugman for the hour. next. captioning sponsored by rose communications

by the united states, by israel, by gulf countries like saudi arabia and qatar and that all these countries have an interest in bringing down the syrian regime and that they're using terrorists to do so. the so the government's narrative is that there isn't a protest movement in the country. there's no grass-roots movement of people seeking their rights, seeking more freedoms but it's terrorists. and then there's the third possibily, right? at ts is actually... this is actually a jihadist group that carried out this attack. there is a group that has surfaced in the last couple months that's got all the typical trappings of a jihadist organization. jihadist iconography, jihadist ideology online. they have claimed responsibility for some attacks in syriaened n recent months. they have not claimed responsibility for this attack but it is possible that they are behind today' attk. >> brn: what abut the seeming target here? the military intelligence headquarters? is that even clear about what was the target? >> that is not clear. this attack did happen near a military intelligence headquarters. in fa
